Leading Houston Pest Control Company Gives Back to Houston Community Post-Hurricane Harvey
· Many pests, including snakes, fire ant colonies, rodents, and more, can be present in flood waters.
· Flood waters may contain human waste, chemicals, fuels, or other substances that can be harmful to humans.
· Use extreme caution if working in any flooded area. Wear personal protective equipment whenever possible.
· Fire ants can relocate by floating during flooding. If you spy a fire ant raft, do not attempt to treat it with pesticides, which can further contaminate flood waters.
· Mosquitoes will be highly active in the days and weeks following a hurricane, and could spread diseases such as West Nile virus and Zika virus.
· Wear insect repellents during cleanup efforts. Apply repellent to both exposed skin and clothing. Reapply as necessary, especially if working in water or sweating.
· To be most effective, insect repellents should contain DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Look for EPA approval on the container.
· Wear long sleeves, long pants, and socks, especially if you are outside from dusk to dawn.
· Mosquitoes are most active in the hours from dusk to dawn. Take extra precautions if you're outside during this time.
